Top Ten Best Sega & Nintendo Characters


The Top Ten

1 Link (The Legend of Zelda) Link (The Legend of Zelda) Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

This list is to like! Not to hate!

Only my characters are good. Sega is not good. Nintendo is the best game company. So many good games with good characters. Please do not compare them with Sega. - ShigeruMiyamoto

2 Shadow The Hedgehog (Sonic Series) Shadow The Hedgehog (Sonic Series) Shadow the Hedgehog is a character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega. He is an artificially created black and red hedgehog whose hover shoes propel him at extreme speeds that rival those of Sonic.

My favorite character out of all of the Sonic characters. He just has that cool vibe and it intrigues me.

I'm so glad shadow got his own game for the GameCube. He deserved one

Shadow is not an emo. So shut up noob.

3 Sonic The Hedgehog (Sonic Series) Sonic The Hedgehog (Sonic Series) Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

Sonic is hated because he is not Classic Sonic anymore. But I love the 3D sonic games more than the classic sonic games anyway. Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyrics is my personal favorite and so as Sonic Generations. Yeah I said it. Modern sonic is better than classic sonic - Chaotixhero

Modern Sonic is annoying! Classic Sonic is great! Boom Sonic is hilarious, and Amy Rose can drum better than Tails.

Are you crapping me! Sonic is way better than Shadow, in several ways! Sonic is loyal, heart felt, determined, more intelligent, and is a classy, bad ass character. That's why I vote for him (but I still love you shadow, sonic just sticks with me.)

Classic Sonic and Modern Sonic have some major differences but I love them both. 2nd most favorite Sonic character ever.

4 Mario (Super Mario Bros. series) Mario (Super Mario Bros. series) Mario is the main character in the Mario Bros. Franchise, who was created by the creative director and video game designer at Nintendo of Japan, Shigeru Miyamoto. Mario has appeared in almost every Mario Game, including spinoff series, as a playable character, with few exceptions including New Super more.

His games are great, but he leaves a lot to be desired as a *character*. He has an annoying voice, a bland design and zero personality. Oh, and his motivation for going on most of his adventures ("let's rescue the stupid princess yet again! ") is lame.

He saved the video game industry, he should be higher. - nintendofan126

He's beaten more bosses than any other video game character I think! At least I think so! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Mario is unbeatable he sould be number one

6 Nights (Nights)

NiGHTS is the only reason why the saturn was good

The Nights series needs more good games

7 Lucario (Pokémon) Lucario (Pokémon) Lucario is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Lucario first appeared as a central character in the film Pokémon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, and later appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and subsequent sequels, also appearing more.

He was my favorite Pokemon since diamond and pearl!

I hate any sega character's design, I liked lucario, he not had bad design! - mewtwo1

Really, dark types?

I love him on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

8 Luigi (Super Mario Bros, series)

Guys don't hate on mario they good brothers and I believe Luigi and mario should be on the same level mario for being the main character and saving games and Luigi because he can relate to normal human beings

Luigi has more heart than Mario!

Luigi could beat his own brother! He is the best!

He Is The Best At Catching Ghost
